Look Up & Live

Many people, particularly farmers, their workers and contractors, as well as builders, boaties and pilots need to be aware of the danger posed by powerlines.

Getting near to or contacting lines can be fatal or lead to serious injury.

Look Up & Live is an ongoing awareness campaign run by SA Power Networks to help the community live and work safely near powerlines. 

The Look Up & Live Fact Sheet includes information about:

  • Different types of powerlines
  • Safe clearance distances from powerlines
  • What to do if you come into direct contact with a powerline.

Download the handy Look Up & Live A5 Card to place inside the console of your tractor, truck or farm vehicle.

You can also go to the Office of the Technical Regulator's website for more information on working safely near powerlines.

If you're a farmer, heavy vehicle driver or a sailor, make sure you're aware of overhead powerlines and Look Up and Live.
